On Sunday 3rd April 2016 at Hope Community Hall we held a very successful 'Afternoon Tea' with Allyson Gofton , who had recently released ' Homestead Baking'. A cookbook to celebrate 50 years of Country Calendar. Over $5000 was raised for the Walk with Us Charitable Trust. Thank you to all who attended the event, purchased an Allyson Gofton Cookbook and gave generously!!
Allyson entertained our audience of over 150 with her stories of her travels, living overseas, as well as sharing some personal ups and down. Whilst doing this she prepared a cake and talked through her methods of measuring etc.
Afterwards Allyson joined us all for a special afternoon tea where there was abundance of good food, good chatter and lots of laughter. This went on for quite a while everyone was enjoying themselves so much they were hesitant to leave.
There was also a chance to purchase a signed copy of ' Homestead Baking'. In it Allyson shares the stories and baking of many of our great farming families! This also has some stunning photos in it so makes a lovely coffee table book as well. Should you wish to purchase a book and support our worthwhile Trust please use our contact page on this website or phone Jenny on 075 449 730.
Another very enjoyable fundraiser for 'Walk with Us' and many thanks to Allyson and Ransom House for their part in making this so successful.
